One of Morgan County’s oldest communities, Apalachee was settled prior to 1820.

 

A key element to the progress of this community is the Apalachee Schoolhouse, constructed in 1911 and still standing today with most of its original materials.

 

This Georgian Revival, wood-framed building stands two stories tall and features a T-shaped plan housing three classrooms and a second-floor auditorium with a stage. Its size serves as a testament to the community’s investment in education at a time when most children in the state attended one-room schoolhouses.

 

While the schoolhouse is no longer used for education, it has been repurposed to continue serving the local community. Today, people gather in the halls for community meetings, art shows, public gatherings, receptions and more.

 

Though the town is no longer incorporated, Apalachee was recognized during Morgan County’s Bicentennial with a historical marker sharing the community’s significant role in county history and honoring the individuals who take pride in this community.

Historical landmark: not open to the public except during special events.
